(Check It Out! Pictures!) KARACHI, Pakistan- Doctors and other medical professionals are now observing a baby which born with ‘six legs’. The ‘six legged’ baby is believed one in one million children which are suffering with the same rare condition. According to doctors, the extra limbs are the arms and legs of a conjoined twin which believed that failed to develop.

Karachi’s National Institute of Child Health Director Jamal Raza said that, “Operating on such a baby is not an easy task as proper assessments need to be done first. We need to figure out whether the baby has his twin’s limbs or his own. We also need to consider how much the internal organs have developed as the latter could complicate matters and decrease the baby’s chances of surviving.”

Imran Shaikh, father of the ‘six legged’ baby, states that he cannot afford to support the financial needs for his baby’s treatment. He appealed to philanthropists and the government to help them for the treatment.
